Back for the Attack

I don't know if it was the friction between Don and George that pushed them to their absolute limits here or what, but this cd has George's best solos and Don's best singing. Kiss of Death is probably the best depiction of the competition between singer and guitarist. The last full minute is a constant struggle for the spotlight, with Don hitting continuous screeching high notes and George matching him in intensity with his blazing solos. This was Dokken at their peak, and at their end...
